Framed Rainbow and a Grungy Sunflower

I've had some Jane Davenport Paint Pens in my stash for a long time, but shame on me I've never used them. So I thought they'd be fun colours for a rainbow. 
I used normal cardstock and I noticed that after a couple of coats of paint it started to pill.  They worked well for the dots  though.  
Stamp: Penny Black 'Banner Sentiments'
Dies: Pinkfresh Studios 'Color Block Rainbow'; SSS 'Stitching Butterflies Fluttering By'; Mama Elephant 'Framed Tags'

I'm sharing at these challenge:-


I stamped the sunflower with Delicata Gold Ink and coloured with Zigs and Twinkling H2Os.
The background was stamped with a very pretty yellow embossing powder. In fact it was too pretty, so I decided to grunge it up with various inks and Vintage Photo Distress Stain.  I then embossed the centre of the flower with Copper Tinsel EP.  

Stamps: Penny Black 'Sunglow'; Background Stamp (unsure of brand)
Die: SSS sentiment
